Idle Chat...ter
Seen over at Mr. Pirillo's...BlogChatter..."real-time weblog aggregation".

BlogChatter is a window into weblog activity right now, at this moment. It is a real-time event stream of weblog updates, similar to the data provided by weblogs.com, without polling or a static data format. Pings to BlogChatter are displayed instantly the moment they are received, and only persisted in memory for no longer than 30 seconds. [link]

No matter where you go, there you are.

Smashing orangey bits
A quick, HUGE note of thanks to Sonia over at Alive and Bloggin across the pond. I joked about getting hooked up with Jaffa Cakes over at her blog recently -- and she just sent a HUGE box full of 'em, and Jaffa Cake Bars (I didn't even know existed). Talk about being in heaven! Let the rationing begin... Thank you SO much, Sonia!

Words are very unnecessary
Sorry I've been so quiet lately. Actually, I take that back. No, I'm not. I rather enjoy waking up next to him every day right now. Real life's got in the way. 'Magine that!

Hope everyone in the U.S. has a great Fourth holiday! -R

Well I'm so glad we could clear that one up now -- aren't you?

That should make you feel all nice and summer-like now... This entry over at Mikey's about the first video you ever saw started it all.

The royal screw
You have until noon tomorrow to vote for the rings at "Today Throws a Wedding". Normally, my vote would always go to Cartier just because -- but I have to say I'm a little disturbed by their choice of groom's ring. It has little tiny "screws" all over it. Does that imply the groom is getting screwed by putting it on?

You've got fires banked down in you - hearth-fires and holocausts
This is something I was so upset about when I heard the news last night, I couldn't even bring myself to blog about it. We named one of the twins we lost Katharine, a name we'd had picked out for years. I figured what greater gift to give a woman, than to be named after someone so wise, strong and independent. That should just about say it all. Rest in peace, Ms. Hepburn. You will never be equaled.

Gentlemen prefer
Don't forget...today is National Blonde Day..."to promote awareness and equality for blondes and non-blondes alike". Don't hate me because I'm beautiful.

Call me...on the line
Things that do not help someone with 'stomach issues' while stuck in bed for the weekend... Endless loops of the new James Carville "infone" commercials. Now, I don't hate the man. Most do -- I don't. I happen to find him amusing most of the time. So sue me. But if I have to see his boxer-wearing, bare-legged, calf-scratching pasty gams one more time this weekend -- I'm thinking of bringing a class-action lawsuit. Want in? It's...icky.
